Help Us Grow... one acre at a time.
Farmers Feeding the Flock is Bread of Life's largest annual fundraiser. This endeavor started in 2017 and is an outstanding example of a partnership between our soup kitchen and local agricultural leaders to raise funds to feed the hungry.
How the program works:
A local farmer provides acreage for planting.
Bread of Life asks for in-kind gifts from local agriculture businesses as well as donations from our donors to help offset the cost of soil preparation, planting, fertilization, and harvest.
After the growing season, crops are harvested and sold.
Greensburg Community Bread of Life then receives all net profits to support expansion needs.
Would you consider partnering with Bread of Life by "helping us grow..one acre at a time"? Any donation, no matter its size, will make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.
2023 Farmers Feeding the Flock
The Fogg Family has donated a field on SW60 in Decatur County. The field was planted on April 14, 2023, but the soybeans didn't begin to emerge until around May 8 due to cool temps, but the seed was treated when planted. Recent rains have helped increase growth.
Stay tuned here for continued field updates.
